Grey's Anatomy Round Table: Season 10 Premiere

by at . Comments

Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table!

Our Grey's Anatomy review broke down the 10th season premiere in great detail. Now, TVF's Courtney Morrison, Christina Tran and Steve Marsi are back for a Q&A discussion of the double episode.

Read their answers below and weigh in with yours!

----------------------------------------

1. What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?

Christina: So much happened, but I have to go with the very first scene with Auntie Cristina snapping away with pictures of baby Derek Bailey Shepherd. Something tells me I'm going to start collecting memories of her since I know this is Sandra Oh's last season.

Courtney: In a very surprise twist for me, I actually really enjoyed the interns bonding over drinks and cheers. It felt very old school Grey’s Anatomy and I loved it.

Steve: Jessica Capshaw and Sara Ramirez really sell you on their characters' arguments, as painful as they are to watch. Derek and Meredith with their baby isn't like to get old anytime soon either, and who was ready to say goodbye to Richard? I think I speak for everyone when I say none of us.

2. The hospital was filled with several citizens and first responders injured by the mudslide. Whose storyline were you most interested in?

Christina: Though they were all heartfelt, there wasn't one in particular I really found interesting. With two hours, there was just way too much going on and I was much more intrigued by the main characters' storylines.

Courtney: I like crazy Sharpie lady!

Steve: Agree with Christina. Grey's rarely disappoints with its patients, but it's all about the doctors, their love lives, and their lives in general (which seem to be in peril more often than not).

3. What's more likely: Callie forgiving Arizona or Owen and Cristina giving it yet another shot?

Christina: I'm going with the latter. Like Callie said, she just doesn't dance around in her underwear anymore. Calzona's demise has been a long time coming and I'm not sure that Callie can forgive her. As for Owen and Cristina, I think they'll always be far from over.

Courtney: Owen and Cristina. No way Callie is forgiving that quickly.

Steve: Cristina and Owen. There's a big difference between making the baby steps Callie did at the end of the premiere for the sake of their daughter and a full-blown reconciliation, whereas Owen and Cristina look like they're on the cusp of such a relationship status update already.

4. Should Japril or Jolex be the real deal?

Christina: Jolex! I'm really glad that the writers aren't rushing these two to be the happily ever after couple. P.S. April is annoying to me again. Jackson can do so much better! Matthew should run.

Courtney: I need my man Alex to have a successful relationship for once, and he and Jo seem to be really good together.

Steve: I'm pulling for both but have always had more of a soft spot for Alex and Jo if we're forced to choose just one! I wonder what the promo below entails for their future, though ...

5. Pen a eulogy for Mousey a.k.a. Heather Brooks.

Christina: Dearest Mousey, we knew so little about you. It sucks that you were yet another victim in Shondaland. Your quirkiness will be missed and maybe you'll haunt the heck out of Shane.

Courtney: To the departed Heather Brooks... you will be missed... I guess? We never got to know you that well and your weirdness did not make you the most liked. But you rocked that haircut and not many could pull it off.

Steve: Mousey. You were the latest sacrificial lamb on a show that kills off too many characters, but I actually kind of liked you a lot. Say hello to the Ghosts of Grey's Anatomy Past for us!

6. It's now clear more than ever that there will be a greater focus on the interns. How do you feel about this? More importantly, can the show go on without the originals?

Christina: I'm apprehensive. I wasn't too fond of the idea of the interns taking the spotlight before, but things like MerDer coming full circle have me wondering if there are any stories left to tell of our favorite original doctors. I think the show could go on, but it's too early to tell if it should. Ask me again later this season.

Courtney: I’m not a huge fan of change, but I feel deep down that Grey’s Anatomy will not go on too much longer. I don’t mind getting to know the interns as long as the originals stay up front. Regardless, this season needs to be the season of Cristina Yang before she leaves us behind.

Steve: It's clear that ABC would like it to go on for years and years, printing money for the network with declining but still formidable ratings while gradually replacing the more expensive, original talent with younger actors and maintaining the creative status quo. If that sounds like a very corporate answer, it is, but I think that's what's going on. Sandra Oh is on the way out and Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey may join her. If that's the case, are the interns compelling enough to anchor the show? I can't say that yet, but it appears they're getting their audition.

Arizona has always been self absorbed and was never my favorite. I hope Callie gets back to who she was because her spirit seems to be fading after this whole situation. I just need my Calliope happy! And honestly, Grey's has been one of my favorite shows in the world, but it's time for it to retire. They can't hang it over our heads like this like they did with E.R. I refuse!!!!

Also @Cathleen: If you watch Arizona carefully throughout the series you will notice she never apologizes.

Jolex all the way-April is just too all over the place and wanting what she wants when she wants it and expecting people to just feel the same.
Arizona at the end, I just wanted to smack her for showing up like that, though it did finally show her realize what she'd done would not just blow over and did anyone else notice that she never apologized for her actions, just said that Callie had every right to be mad at her and out what she'd done

Half of the originals are gone, with Yang leaving that will tilt the scale. The show has to come up with more innovative ideas & scenarios, which they never fall short on. I wouldn't mind them bringing BACK an original!!

its not like Sofia Arizona child

Callie is being a real b***h. Just because Arizona cheated on her dosnt give her the right not to let her see Sofia.

I am so sick of them killing off doctors. Its so stupid and unrealistic. They could had came up with a ton other ways to write off Heather.

Seriously? The interns? They killed off the most promising doctor in Brooks. Stephanie and Jackson are an awful match. Shane is too moody and self absorbed. The girl who admitted her mother was a Sloan conquest who got her into the program is a dummy! So, no regulars, no show!

I loved it! They still keep the show fresh , which is pretty admirable with ten seasons. It was really nice that they talked frequently (or more than usual) about the previous cast members lncluding George, Mark and Izzie, which was a great homeage seeing as they have reached a milestone.
I actually, kind of like the interns and I think they are going to grow, when they got into the ambulance it was reminiscent of the ferry crash, which I think indicates the struggles they will have to face, and the personal growth needed. Can't wait for more, hopefully as good as the premier

Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 1 Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Cristina: Who's Dr. Boswell?
Callie: She's the woman Arizona slept with last night.
